1993 DIAL 

The Gold Standard 

Untarnished by Age 

"Education should be a teaching . . . give us the truth . . . Truth in 

of the truth; for the want of this theory and principle, truth in spirit 

nothing can compensate, neither and motive, truth in manner and 

strength or argument, nor beauty form, truth physical, truth intellec- 

of composition, nor elegance of tual, and truth moral. All truth is of 

language, nor ingenuity of theory, God; all parts are in harmony; all 

nor any other thing. Truth, truth, have one end." — Cyrus Peirce. 

Notice these faces. They are the 
faces of graduates from the past. 
^Yet they all set a precedent of ex- 
cellence which others strive to 
achieve. In their own way, each has 
helped to create a standard — a 
gold standard by which all others 
are judged. It is to these people — 
everyday people who once graced 

the student body of our own col- 
lege's past — that we fondly ded- 
icate the 1993 Dial Yearbook. Al- 
though time has claimed many, 
may their hopes, dreams, and ac- 
complishments go forever untar- 
nished by age and stand forever

^^ ometimes it's hard 
viewing the entire student 
body as one single entity. 
Each student is his or her 
own person — an individual 
at best. But in what ways 
are all students included on 
common ground? We all, in 
some way, share one 
common trait. We simply 
refer to is as STUDENT LIFE. 


The First event of the 
1992-93 school year was 
New Student Orienta- 
tion. Students spent three 
fun filled days getting to 
know the campus and 
meeting new people. With 
the help of the Black § 
Gold Staff, students were 
taken on the ride of their 
lives. Jeff Desjarlais pre- 
sented "Cocktails § Con- 
doms" a funny look at the 
serious subject of Alcohol 
% Intimacy. Doug Cureton 
taught everyone about 
diversity. Everyone had 
the chance to win prizes 
at Casino Night and Trib- 
al Rhythms gave every- 
one a chance to let loose 
and dance. Transfer stu- 
dents tried their hand at 
Karaoke, Captians Com- 
ing and HA! New stu- 
dents learned about all 
that Framingham State 
has to offer.

October 5th-9th was Alcohol 
Awareness week here at Fra- 
mingham State. During this week 
many events were held to raise the 
awareness of the effects alcohol 
can have on a persons life. The 
highlight of the week was Dead 
Day. Organized by the members of 
BACCHUS (Boosting Alcohol Con- 
science Concerning the Health of 
University Students.) The day was 
to remember those who die each 
year as a result of alcohol related 
accidents, the students who vol- 
unteered to die were RA's, ath- 
letes, student leaders, and others 
who were interested in spreading 
the message. These students were 
required to wear black, wear a 
badge that stated how they died 
and stay silent for the entire day. 
The next day those who partici- 
pated had a gravestone erected in 
their name in front of May Hall. 
Although the event only lasted for 
two days, the effects on the cam- 
pus lasted for a long time.

The questions were to teach 
every one about alcohol and re- 
sponsible drinking. A raffle was 
held between rounds the lucky

Double Dare sponsored 
by RHA. Each hall had

For the team who did take 
the dare some interest-

Rams Crush 
Worcester State 


Homecoming Football Game an FSC Success 

14-0 with no opposition in 
sight. Could it possibly get any 
better? Well, actually, it did 
get better . . . 

In the stands on Homecom- 
ing sat numerous members of 
FSC football teams of the past. 
Dr. Dennis Golden, the original 
coach of the Rams, was there 
as was Joe Collins, the presi- 
dent of the End Zone Club. 
Various other members of pre- 
vious Ram lineup were also 
there, including Bill Benson, 
who still leads FSC history in 
game and season rushing 
marks. In fact, this game 
marked the twentieth year of 
FSC's football homecoming 
history . . . and what beter way 
to celebrate such an event with 
an FSC victory over rival 
Worcester State? 

Tom Raeke, head coach of 
the Rams this year, said, 
"There was a lot on these kids 
this week. It has been tense 

with all the greats around. I'm 
just so proud that they re- 
sponded so well." 

The 1992 Rams didn't waver 
by the knowledge that many 
Ram alumnae — who undoubt- 
edly set the precedent of how 
FSC's football program would 
progress over the years — 
were in the stands. Some might 
say that the mixing of the old 
and new teams added com- 
eradery and pride amongst the 
players and their fans. 

Sophomore linebacker, Den- 
nis Mannone, was awarded the 
John Calder Memorial Award 
as the game's most valuable 
player. Mannone had II stops 
and a blocked field attempt for 
the day. 

After defeating Worcester 
State, the Rams then pro- 
gressed to a game at Buzzards 
Bay, where they battled the 
Buccaneers of Mass. Mari-

Student elections at Fra- 
lingham State College are 
aken very seriously. In one 
ingle day, every office from 
ne Masspirg chair to the seat 
s President of SGA are voted 
pon. These offices range in 
ower from delegating stu- 
ent fees to deciding which 
ntertainment will appear dur- 
lg Sandbox. For many, the 
epresentatives elected on 
GA Election Day are the only 
oice the average student has 

with the college governing 

On April 14, the 1993-1994 
SGA elections were held. Mi- 
chael Hebert — newly elected 
President of SGA — beat his 
opponent, Julie Farrell, by a 
vote of 284 to 126. Charles Gar- 
barrino, however, just merely 
squeezed by his opponent, Sue 
Fairfield, by 7 votes to catch 
the SGA Vice Presidential spot. 

Steve Farias won over Chris 
Anderson for Class and Club 
Treasurer. Kim Van Winkle and 
Armen Zildjian — both running 
unopposed — were elected as 
Student Activities Treasurer 
and Student Trustee. Janel 
Bennett, also running unop- 
posed, was re-elected as SGA 

secretary. Steve Mayo (Pres- 
ident), Lynn Boudreau (Vice 
President), and Karla Lind- 
quest (Secretary) of the Class 
of 1994 were all re-elected, with 
the addition of Anesti Aga- 
piadis as Treasurer. 

Although successful, the 
election drew a mere fraction 
of the student body population 
of 3,179 to the voting box. Out 
of the total number of full and 
part-time students, only about 
400 voted. 

There was also a shortage of 
candidates this year. Many of- 
fices were not filled, including 
the FSC Masspirg chair and 20 
senatorial positions. There 
were also 170 names written in 
on various ballots. Of these 
write-in candidates, some sen- 
ators of the Class of 1994 were 
voted in with as little as one

Culture in Effect — an organ-

celebrates the different cultures 
of the student body — held its 
annual lip sync contest in the 
Dwight Auditorium. 

The event, which was once 
again open to all FSC students, 
attracted a large and enthusi- 
astic audience to watch its var- 
ious acts. This year drew an even 
broader array of students as well 
as of different types of music 
represented in the program. The 
acts consisted of everything 
from the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 
most recent hig, "Give it Away," 
to more traditional music ac- 
companied by such things as 
modern dance. 

The event — which was spon- 
sored by Culture in Effect — was 
hosted by Jermaine, Quovardis, 
and Christina Gomes, who all did 
excellent jobs as the night's MC's 
as well as taking part in the lip 
sync festivities themselves.

Shabazz Addresses Racial, 
Sexist Attitudes 

Dr. Betty Shabazz, famous wife of Civil Rights 
activist Malcolm X, addressed over 650 people 
on Tuesday, February 2. 

Shabazz spoke to college students, faculty, 
and members of the public in the Dwight Audi- 
torium at Framingham State College. The topic 
of her speech was "The Status of Blacks and 
Women in Today's Society." 

One of Shabazz's most enforced messages 
was the importance of being aware of one's own 
past. She quoted her husband various times by 
saying, "We are where we are because of us," 
meaning that those who are ignorant of history 
are doomed to repeat their ancestors' mistakes. 
During her speech, Shabazz related this impor- 
tance of being familiar with one's own heritage 
to two main social issues facing a modern soci- 
ety: racism and sexism. She also pointed out the 
need for leadership for minorities, such as wom- 
en and African Americans. 

Shabazz expressed her concerns that equal 
rights in 1993 were distributed in both an une- 
qual and "destabilized" manner. She also en- 
couraged today's youth to work towards a more 
stable equality for various cultures and for dif- 
ferent genders. "Learn now to develop objectives 
. . . that will turn destabilization around." 

Shabazz related the need for equality within 

the workplace. She states that women alone 
make up two-thirds of the world's work force. 
In retrospect, she stated that women only ac- 
count for one-third of the world's payroll. 

Shabazz blamed the fact that women and mi- 
norities are "systematically programmed for fail- 
ure" as the cause of poor self-esteem and self- 
accomplishment with these groups. 

The problems which Shabazz believes should 
not be present in a modern society were also 
addressed. She concerned herself with topics 
such as illiteracy, drug use, poverty, school drop- 
outs, and the increase in the number of street 
children. "We must celebrate the end of all this," 
she told her audience. 

The United States' "infatuation" with race, 
class, and gender were also mentioned by Sha- 
bazz. She argued that a better vision for the 
country would be to concentrate on all people 
working together for the advancement of mod- 
ern technology and for the ability to compete 
with more advanced countries. 

Shabazz's speech lasted well over an hour be- 
fore opening up the floor to the audience for 
questions. Afer fielding many questions from au- 
dience members, Shabazz attended a reception 
in her honor, where she gave time for auto- 
graphs for students. 

Dr. Betty Shabazz speaks to her FSC audience.

Culture in Effect as a part of Black Histo 



On Black History 

Qua Vardis Gomes, President of Culture in Effect 

"The most important fact that students 

ould know is that Black History Month is not 

nonth for Black people only. It is for educating 

hers about our identity and our culture. 

"During Black History Month, we (Culture in 

feet) have a lot of programming and a good 

imber of students don't go to events because 

ere's no interest or it wasn't an issue that was 

levant to them personally. There's a lot of ed- 

ational things from which to learn. 

"Programming on this campus as a whole is 

very big issue. A lot of students don't get in- 

-Ived. That's a big problem. Black History 

onth is a time that the students need to look 

and to not let the whole month pass by. 

"Almost every day this month, there's an 

ent going n. Even if students went to one 

event on their own — rather than going for a 
course requirement or for extra credit — they 
could maybe learn some things they didn't know 

"... I know that the average student — 
even after high school — is still left with the 
question of "What is Black History?" Many 
don't really know the answer to that question 
because they were taught in the suburbs and 
Black History wasn't addressed that much. 

"Black History Month on the FSC campus is 
very important, and it has progressed in past 
years. Black History used to be celebrated during 
Black History Week. Now that it's expanded, it 
opens up more opportunities and events. It's 
very important."

Black History 

As a part of February I993's 
Black History Month celebration, 
Culture in Effect and the Student 
Union Activities Board (SUAB) 
sponsored its own version of the 
hit nightly game show, Jeopardy, 
and a Five and Dime comedy night 
starring Rhonda Hansome. 

Christina Gomes did an excel- 
lent job as host of Black History 
Month Jeopardy with Paula Saari 
turning the questions as Vanna 
White. The three teams — Cul- 
ture in Effect, SUAB, and the Class 
of 1995 — were given questions 
concerning prominent black 
members of the world communi- 
ty. For the second consecutive 
year, Culture in Effect won with 
SUAB and the Class of 1995 in sec- 
ond and third respectively. 

Also as a part of Black History 
Month, SUAB sponsored a Five 
and Dime comedy night. Paula 
Saari, the chair of the Five and 
Dime committee for SUAB, wel- 
comed the students into the pub 
and introduced Rhonda Hansome. 
In the usual Framingham State 
style, Rhonda kept the audience 
rolling in the aisles. 

Other Black History Month 
Events included an African Amer- 
ican Tribal Art exhibit, an ethnic 
vendor fair, and guest speaker 
Betty Shabaaz — widow of the 
famed Malcom X. 

All events were a huge success 
and served as an educational ex- 
perience for the students of Fra- 
mingham State. 

SUAB came in second. The team consisted of Tamera, Shana Banana, Brian, and

Snowflake Brings Good Weather 

February held many breakthroughs in improv- 
ing communication on the Framingham State 
College (FSC) Campus, but none stuck out as 
importantly as the Snowflake Conference which 
chiefly aimed at the topic of diversity. 

Held on January 20 in the College Center Fire- 
place Lounge, more than 100 faculty members 
gathered for the all-day conference. Faculty 
members were encouraged to submit courses 
which they felt were needed in order to expand 
the college's offerings of studies concerning non- 
Western cultures, as well as the study of gender, 

race, and class. 

Dr. Helen Heineman, Acting Vice President < 
Academic Affairs, put together the conferenc 
which aimed at developing a more diverse edi 
cation program at FSC. 

Heineman said, "This is where education 
now." Heineman also stated that "There is 
feeling that we live in an increasingly divers 
world. There are a lot of different people 01 
there — different cultures, different lifestyle 
different attitudes — and we have to equip 01 
students to understand that world." 

Student Escort Service Underway 

Darkness on the Framingham State College 
npus has always provided just a touch more 
ritement to those students who must walk 
me at night. 

Although the shuttle bus runs from the sep- 
ite parking lots to May Hall for most of the 
;ning, those students traveling from dorm to 
rm or from the library or other buildings on 
npus to their cars for the most part had to 
ke it on their own. Campus Police helped as 
ich as they could, but sometimes emergency 
Is were urgent, thus the student could not be 
>plied with an escort. What's a student to do? 
On March 29. the student escort system be- 
i its operation with willing student escorts 
o were paid to provide safe walking partners 

those traveling on foot on the campus at 

\ccording to SGA officials, the student escort 
tern had been in planning for several years, 

it was only this March that the program was 
e to get off the ground. Now, with SGA fund- 

and workers from the student body, the serv- 

was able to provide 10-20 escorts a night 
ween the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 2 a.m. 
:rin Reilly. a member of the Student Govern- 

ment Association (SGA), worked as supervisor of 
the student escort program. Reilly also worked 
as dispatcher for the escorts. 

Reilly stated, "I think the Student Escort Serv- 
ice is necessary. Every other college campus has 
one." When asked about the structure of the 
program, she said, "It's very professional even 
though it's informal. There is a team of two peo- 
ple working together at all times." 

These two escorts are dispatched to the per- 
son requesting the escort and they both walk 
with the person until he or she has safely reached 
their destination. Unlike the service provided by 
Campus Police in the past, the escort system 
does not drive the students to their destination, 
but rather they walk with the student. This fac- 
tor has been linked by Chief Sayewich as to the 
drop in the amount of escorts requested each 
night. According to Sayewich, before the stu- 
dent escort system was implemented, Campus 
Police would receive between 30 and 40 escort 
requests per night. 

All in all, many are happy with the student 
escort system, which is still evolving steadily as 
weeks pass by. 







The Upper Sandbox went through many 
changes this year -- despite the fact that not too 
many students on campus could figure out just 
what the workers were up to. Once a mild-man- 
nered brick box of trees, the Upper Sandbox all 
but disappeared when its contents were suc- 
tioned out, leaving nothing but the remnants of 
what looked to be a barren swimming hole. Dur- 
ing the summer months, flowers magically ap- 
peared (with the help of workers) and beautified 
the campus. 

(Above) The groundscrew worked on the Sandbox, which 
remarkably resembled a gigantic jigsaw puzzle from the 
fourth floor of the College Center. 


Mot Just Another Pretty Face 


'-^ ■ - 

In addition to the work being done on the 
Upper Sandbox, the Sandbox's Sister Wall also 
received a face lift. Scaffolds took over the out- 
side windows of the Resident Cafeteria as work- 
ers tried to clean up and to stop water damage 
to that part of the College Center. The stairs 
leading to the Lower Sandbox were closed for 
months during the effort, leaving resident stu- 
dents confused at first as to how to get to the

Sponsored by SUAB Daytime Programs 


As a prelude to this year's 
Sandbox festival, the Student 
Union Activities Board (SUAB) 
sponsored yet another week 
of fun and entertaining game 

For four days, students could 
sign up for and compete in a 
variety of differrent games, 
such as the famous Blizzard of 
Bucks, Name That Tune, Trop- 
ical Trivia, Bingo, and Simmon 
Sez with Paul Simmon. 

The prizes for these events 
ranged from cold hard cash to 
SUAB sport bottles, but the 
prizes weren't as good as 
watching the exciting — and 
sometimes downright hilari- 
ous — competition between 
the FSC students. 

Paul Simmon, who once again 
returned to FSC, was very fun- 
ny as he found out just how 
wacky or zany a student would 
behave for the sake of a prize. 

The bingo games took the 
snackbar by storm as many 
students took a chance at yell- 
ing, "BINGO" for a prize.

Lakeysha Dumas proves that — even

GONE . . . 

On April 17th the Family-Parent 
Council sponsored it's yearly auc- 
tion. Buyers had the chance to bid 
on a wide variety of items, from a 
trip to Martha's Vineyard, to a sub- 
criction to the Middlesex News to 
pieces of art. The day started out 
with a silent auction, which you 
wrote your bid on a piece of paper 
next to the item. Late in the day 
a full fledged auction took place. 
Where fierce bidding took place 
on the more popular items. Many 
people came away with excellent 
bargins and fun was had by all.

The electric company and outside con-

power was restored Tuesday afternoon. 

Picture it — Well, we tried to, 
but no flash could quite cut through 
the darkness that visited the FSC 
campus on Manday April 19. 

The day started out pretty nor- 
mally for most resident students as 
many made their way back after 
the long weekend. There was time 
for socializing with friends, for 
watching t.v., and for doing even 
the most dreaded of computer as- 
signments ... or so we all thought. 

Four residence halls and five 
other college buildings were left 
without full electricity because 
fuses attached to the cables of a 
transformer near Towers Ha 
burned out, causing the flow of 
electricity to these buildings to 

The brunt of the power failure 
originally affected only two resi- 
dence halls and the library. The 
blackout later spread to the power 
plant, which caused most other 
campus buildings to lose power also. 

For students in Foster, O'Con- 
nor, Larned, and Towers, the 
blackout provided enough incen- 
tive to catch up on sleeptime. Oth- 
ers went to the College Center, 
which stayed open until midnight 
to accommodate those students 
without power who wished to 

On Tuesday, various rumors 
started as to the cause of the pow- 
er outage. One of these such ru- 
mors included tales of a baseball 
gone awry. Also, classes in the li- 
brary were re-routed to the Col- 
lege Center until power was re-

Play "Fair" 

The annual Sandbox Street- 
fair once again offered a big 
array of fun all located on 
blocked-off State Street. With 
this year's theme of "Tropical 
Dreams," many clubs and or- 
ganizations created booths 
with a tropical theme, such as 
ARC's "tropical delights." 

Everything from t-shirts to 
plants were on sale. Different 

groups also got into the act by 
the sales of Dial Yearbook ice 
cream cookie sandwiches to 
other groups' Italian ice and 
cotton candy. 

Also, RHA's annual "scav-

as different teams raced 
around campus trying to be 
first to finish.

Each year, bands consisting

type of musical style goes. 

With bands such as Thin Ice

great entertainment. Students

be remembered for its rendi-

the week before.

.eadership Awards Ceremony 

Every spring the Framingham State Col- 
ge Community gathers together to rec- 
;nize the people who make the college 
hat it is, its students. This year's awards 
remony was held on Sunday April 25th 
Dwight Auditorium. Students along with 
eir family and friends filled the audi- 
rium for this special occasion. Prior to 
e ceremony a brunch was held for the 
udents and their families where they 
id a chance to talk about what had 
ought them there on that day. The cer- 
nony started with presentation of Col- 
ge sponsored awards and Scholorships. 
lese included the presentation of those 
niors selected for publication in Who's 
ho Among Students at American Col- 
ges and Universities. Next came the 
esentation of The Alumni Association 
onsored awards. This drew the return 
many Framingham State College Alum- 

ni. Finally came recognition of those stu- 
dents who demonstrated leadership in the 
many campus organizations. Also pre- 
sented at this time was the Paul T Murphy 
Award, presented to the student who pre- 
sented outstanding leadership in one ac- 
tivity and the John F Kennedy Jr Award, 
presented to the student who displayed 
exceptional leadership abilities in a wide 
range of campus activities. The highlight 
of the ceremony was the emotional pres- 
entation of the Allison Wren Peer Edu- 
cation Award. The award was named af- 
ter former Framingham State College Stu- 
dent who was killed in an alcohol related 
accident. Allison's Mother and Sister were 
on hand to present the award to BAC-

Search for Academk 

The search for the Vice President of Academic 
Affairs for Framingham State College (FSC) end- 
ed this May. Dr. Helen Heineman, former Chair 
of the English Department, was chosen from 
over 100 applicants for this position. She was 
very happy and grateful to be offered the posi- 
tion. Heineman felt good to have gained the con- 
fidence of the president and the diverse group of 
the search committee. 

The search was a long, hard process that in- 
cluded a nation-wide search. Dr. Heineman be- 
lieved that the most difficult part of the process 
was being on campus, doing her job, but know- 
ing the search was still going on. She had to just 
put it out of her mind and continue her work. 

Another difficult part of the search for Dr. 
Heineman was the interview process. As a teach- 
er, she is accustomed to answering inquiries, but 
these questions were more of a personal nature, 
which was a new and challenging experience for 

Overall, Dr. Heineman believed it was a ben- 
eficial opportunity because it encouraged her to 
really consider what she thought about the col- 
lege, the faculty and the students. 

As the Academic Vice President, Dr. Heine- 

man is the Chief Academic Officer of the college 
and reports directly to the president. She is re- 
sponsible for all the academic programs and mat- 
ters and contracts, the Lyceum, the Arts and 
Humanities program, the library, CASA, and the 
Media Center. 

She believes her office should be a place for 
people to come and to have questions answered. 
Bringing new ideas and new programs to the 
college is also important, according to Heine- 

One of the major accomplishments of the act- 
ing vice president this year has been reforming 
the general education curriculum. One of her 
main challenges during this campaign was con- 
vincing the faculty that the curriculum could be 
revised, said Heineman. 

Heineman has set priorities in satisfying the 
needs of the faculty. Her new position has limited 
contact she has with students and she feels the 
best way for her to serve them is through a com- 
petent faculty. 

Dr. Heineman has also been responsible for 
the Snowflake Conference, the Curriculum Com- 
mittee, and two All College Days. Another im- 
portant part of her job is program and curriculum 

Dr. Helen Heinema 


The main goals that she would like to accc 
plish for next year are to see a successful cc 
pletion of the general education curriculum 
form and to achieve more for the faculty. 

Lack of confidence in the college is a probl 
that the Academic Vice President would like 
overcome for next year. She realizes the FSC 
not Harvard, but she wants students to unc | 
stand that she has taught at both schools i 
the class content has been the same. 

The graduate program, accreditation, and s 
dent and faculty forums are projects Heinerr 
will continue to work on next year. 

Teaching and interacting with students 
two aspects of faculty life that Heineman 
reluctantly give up for her new position. At I 
point, there are many things that come betwi

From Orientation to representation, the

trouble getting off the ground at first. 
With the usual apathy which accompanies 
most Freshman class organizations during 
their first semester in existence, the Class 
of 1996 still held on and trudged forward. 

By second semester, a stronger class 
team started to appear. They began pub-

1996 then was ready for the ultimate task: 
their first fundraiser.

ning their booth, the Class of 1996 broke

as a "Movie Madness" cup and an "MSM

Boosting Alcohol Consciousness Concerning Health of University Students 

BACCHUS is a national peer education pro- 
gram dedicated to helping students make re- 
sponsible decisions around the use or non-use of 
beverage alcohol. The BACCHUS philosophy is 
that college students can play a uniquely effec- 
tive role in encouraging their peers to reflect on, 
to talk honestly about, and to develop positive 
habits and attitudes toward alcohol consump- 
tion. There are currently over 400 BACCHUS 
chapters in the United States. The FSC chapter 
began in I 989 and has been growing every year. 

Both social and educational programs are 

sponsored by BACCHUS, which has made its 
known on the campus through its memoral 
programs. Just a few of the BACCHUS prograi 
sponsored this year were Safe Spring Bre 
week, Dead Day, and the sale of mocku 
(cocktails minus the alcohol) at Sandbox. J

to further their interest in a subject outside

he purpose of the Chemistry Club is to foster

t to the formal program of instruction in the 

field of Chemistry. The Club is open to all stu- 
dents and their activities include field trips, guest 
speakers, and the general encouragement of

All students with an interest in Chemistry are 
encouraged to join the Chemistry Club and to

You remember, don't you? 
It wasn't that long ago,

For most of us, our first 
memories of FSC stem 
from a whirlwind of events occur-

which 1/3 of us now call "home" for 
close to 6 months of the year. Yes, 
that can only mean one thing to an- 
yone who has ever been a Freshman 
or a transfer student: orientation. 

Perhaps the memory's a little bit 
hazy, but how can someone forget 
spending their first nights on a col-

all this newness, one cannot help the 
feeling of being if all but over-

The Gatepost staffers also sold 
teriyaki strips and popcorn at the 
annual FSC Homecoming Streetfair 
(which was consequently held in- 
doors on the count of rain). The staff 
also attempted to raffle off a party 
at the Ground Round. During the 
Sanbox Streetfair, The Gatepost 
sponsored "Picnic Games" — a non- 
traditional relay race held on Crock- 
er Beach. 

The 1992-1993 Gatepost staff 
wishes to thank advisors Walter Ko- 
roski and Desmond McCarthy, as 
well as Graduate Assistant Kim Dee- 
ly and Administrative Assistant June 
Paxman for all their hard work, time, 
and effort throughout the year. 



Economics and Business Administration majors, minors, 
and all students are invited to join the Economics/Business 
Club at Framingham State College. 

The Economics/Business Club is active in campus in- 
volvement and will continue to host favorite events of FSC 
students. Such events which the club sponsors include 
special guest speakers and the faculty-student-alumni so- 

The Economics/Business Club also serves the college 
community on an academic level by providing field trips, 
academic advising for Economics/Business classes and the 
chance for outstanding students to be recognized by the 
national honor society, Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE). 

The purpose of the Framingham State College Chorus is 
to provide those students who sing or play the piano the 
opportunity to apply those talents in rehearsal and per- 
formance. The Chorus, which is now open to both students 
and faculty members, rehearses approximately two hours 
per week in preparation for concerts at the end of each 

In December, the Chorus performs at the annual Tree- 
Lighting on the Framingham Village Green, at a nursing 
home in Natick, and on campus for the college community. 
In May, a final concert is performed on campus. 

The FSC Chorus also provides an opportunity for its; 
members to attend other concerts in the area as a club 
outing. The Chorus members participate with a serious 
intent and yet with enjoyment and fun. Tryouts are held 
at the beginning of each semester. 

Founded in 1924, Sigma Tau Delta is an international 
English honor society. There are 400 chapters and over i 
65,000 members, among which are such persons as Eudora 
Welty and James Dickey.

initiated. Collegiate membership is available to English ma- 
jors and minors (undergradute and graduate) with a cu- 
mulative Quality Point Average of 3.0 or higher, who have 
completed at least three semesters of college work. As- 
sociate membership is available to faculty members with 
a degree in English and to alumni who majored or minored 
in English and graduated with a cumulative QPA of 3.0 or

WDJM Broadens Horizons 

WDJM is Framingham 
State College's student- 
run radio station. Its of- 
fice is located in room 512 
high above in the College 

Initially perceived as 
an alternative radio sta- 
tion, its diverse pro- 
gramming challenged the 
redundancy of the Top 
40 commercial radio sta- 
tion. This year, however, 
the station changed its 
format and restructured 
its musical choices in an 
effort to win over more 
listeners. Now, in addi- 
tion to its alternative 
roots, the station also 
plays a variety of differ- 
ent types of music, which 

are scheduled in set time 
blocks throughout the 
week. The music ranges 
from "light" music, 
which is Top 40-style 
music, then to "medi- 
um," and "heavy," which 
is heavy metal. 

WDJM is also an FSC 
student's best place to 
gain experience in disk 
jockeying or in helping 
with all aspects of pro- 
gramming. Students are 
encouraged to tune their 
FM dial to 91.3 for an 
awakening to the very 
latest in music and spe- 
cial programming, such 
as comedy and coverage 
of FSC sports. 


Clubs: A Golden Opportunity 



The Student Union Activities Board (SUAB) is one of 
the largest and most active clubs on campus. As a club, 
they create and produce many of the events and activities 
at Framingham State College. By utilizing student ideas 
and energies, SUAB attempts to provide a wide variety of 
entertainment for the FSC community. 

There are seven different committees: Concerts, Day- 
time, Films, Five and Dime, Social, Special Progams, and 

Travel and Receation, each with its own unique program- 
ming purpose. They have sponsored major concerts, danc- 
es, lectures, caricaturists, palm readers, films, spring 
break, cultural activities, the annual Fall Street Fair and 
Spring Sandbox Weekend. This year, SUAB was able to 
bring the Cliffs of Doneen and the Smithereens to Sandbox 
and offered a "Tropical Dreams" theme to yet another 
successful Sandbox weekend at FSC.

The students at Framingham State College voted to form and 
.und a chapter of the Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group 
I MASSPIRG) as have students on 27 other campuses in Massachu- 

I FSCPIRG is a group of students with interests in consumer and 
'nvironmental issues who share a common desire to help people of 
he college, the surrounding community and, where they can, the 
vorld. The group accomplishes this through the legislative process 
)f the Massachusetts government and by hands-on labor. Past suc- 
cesses of MASSPIRG and FSCPIRG include passing the strongest 
tollution prevention law in the country, the used car lemon law, 
lelping to fight hunger and homelessness, and registering students 
o vote. 

This year, the FSC chapter of MASSPIRG sponsored such activi- 
ies ranging from broadening recycling awareness on campus to 
lelping out in local Framingham shelters. 





SAFE (Student Advocates For Education is an on-campus peer 
education comprised of student volunteers. SAFE educators are 
trained to present hour-long workshops on such important and dif- 
ficult topics as AIDS, contraception, STD's, alcohol, and acquain- 
tance/date rape. 

The 1 992- 1 993 SAFE educators offered a wide array of lectures 
throughout the year, including one lecture entitled, "Sex: How SAFE 
are you?" which explored the risks of sex in the I990's.

fhere's Something for Everyone 

Beta Beta Beta 

Beta Beta Beta, otherwise known as Tri-Beta, is FSC's 
Biological Honor Society. Their purpose is to function as 
both an honor and professional society for students of 
the biological sciences. The group offers associate and 
active memberships. Their activities are designed to stim- 
ulate interest, scholarly attainment, and investigation in 
the biological sciences by having speakers lecture on cur- 
rent topics, organizing activities pertaining to biology,

various programs as well as prompting social and career 
networking for sociology majors. The organization has es- 
tablished a lecture series to encourage informal discussions 
with area sociologists and others on topics deemed inter- 
esting to students, faculty, and other members of the col- 
lege community. 

Art Activists 

The Art Activists Club allows students to become fa- 
miliar with the art world inside and outside the commu- 
nity. It is an excellent experience meeting with artists, 
working with artists, learning from artists, and also view- 
ing galleries, museums, and studio spaces. The club 
(open to everyone) organizes workshops, related trips, 
and is responsible for bringing guest speakers to campus. 
Open-figure drawing sessions are also arranged by the 
club. Once a year, the Art Activists sponsors a weekend 
trip to New York City, exposing the students to one of 
the largest art centers in the world. The group is also 
privileged to purchase artwork to add to the college's 

English Club 

Not restricted to English" majors, the English Club 
hopes to create and to maintain a close relationship 
among students interested in writing and the arts. 

The- English Club serves the FSC community by host- 
ing readings and recitals by guest poets and writers, 
as well as by FSC faculty; an evening of readings/per- 
formances by students; and gatherings to commemo- 
rate special literary occasions. All English Club events 
are open to the public. 

This year's officers were as follows: Allen Alibozek 
(president), Christien Coleman (vice president), and 
Hope E. Murray (secretary). 


Hitting the Books 

The History Club is open to all students on 
the FSC campus. The club has sponsored lectures 
by outstanding authorities on topics as varied as 
witchcraft and magic, as well as the history of 
the John Quincy Adams family. The Club also 
attended a field trip to the John Quincy Adams 
House and Church, and sponsored and success- 
fully won a trivial pursuit competition against 
seven other campus teams. During the annual 
Streetfair, the History Club also gave out free 
samples of "Haagen Dasz" ice cream, as well as 
t-shirts and Frisbees. 

FSC'S Math Club spnsors guest speakers from 
the math field and trips to computer companies

their own opinions on departmental issues. 

Various social events are planned during each 
year, which include both faculty and students. 

On Top of the Hill 

Hillel is the Jewish student organization on 
campus. Framingham State College has had an 
active Hillel chapter which frequently participates 
in social functions with various other Hillel chap- 
ters on surrounding campuses, such as Bentley, 
Babson, Lesley, Northern, and Boston University 
just to name a few. 

Although the club is considered to be mostly 
a social group, the club tries to meet individual 
religious needs of its members and members of 
the Jewish population on campus. 

Hilltop Players is the drama club at Framing- 
ham State College. The group's main purpose is 
to promote and to perform theatre on campus 
and to encourage students to pursue their tal- 
ents in drama. The group fosters good will be- 
tween students, faculty, staff, and the commu- 
nity at large by presenting shows for the enjoy- 
ment of everyone. Hilltop Players meets once a

Home Economics field of study. 

This year, the Home Economics Club was 
a very active club at most college functions. 

Their activities included the making of hand- 
made hair scrunchies and the sale of them at 
the annual Streetfair. At Sandbox, the club 
provided earrings and hairclips — all hand- 
made by club members — which were up for

'There is no typical . . . student. We have students who range in age 
m eighteen to almost eighty. We have men and women who have fam- 
>. Some are heads of households or are single. We have people who are 
rking in small businesses or in large companies. 
'There is one common factor, though, that can be applied to most . . 
udents. Most of the people who avail themselves ... at FSC are doing 
or a job objective. They're looking to coming back for personal enrich- 
nt and many individual goals. But most students are returning for some 
g or short-term career goals. So the typical student has that one com- 
n trait of trying to improve their career opportunities throughout their 
s. Otherwise, they're a very diverse population." 
— James Brown, Director of Continuing Education 
As quoted in Tfie Gatepost, November 6, 1 992 


Framingham State College hosts 
what it calls "ARC" — or "Adults 
Returning to College." Found on 
the fourth floor of the College Cen- 
ter, ARC serves as both a social fo- 
rum and a peer group for those FSC 
students who do not fit the mold as 
"traditional students" — meaning 
those students who at one time or 
the other left college to pursue fam- 
ily, work, or personal goals. 

The members of ARC take an ac- 
tive role at many college activities, 
such as the sale of their "Tropical 
Delights" at the Sandbox Streetfair 
this year.

Learning from Diversity 

Culture in Effect Celebrates Differences 

Culture in Effect brings persons of different 
cultures together to plan and to present cultural, 
educational, and social programs of a multicul- 
tural nature. In effect, it is an organization built 
upon multiculturalism. The group's objective is 
to educate others about different views, life- 
styles, and cultures. 

This year's activities included Black History 
Month, which offered various activities and lec- 

tures targeted at educating members of Fra- 
mingham State College and the surrounding 
communities about the African American culture. 
Doctor Betty Shabazz, the wife of Civil Rights 
Activist Malcolm X, gave a speech in the Dwight 
Auditorium to commemorate the month. The an- 
nual Black History Month Jeopardy game — 
which was comprised of trivia questions pertain- 
ing to Black History — was also held. 

Culture in Effect also sponsored the annua 
Sync Contest — open to everyone from the 
lege — and a movie night to see the mi 
"Malcolm X" in November. 

Most importantly, Culture in Effect spons 
weekly meetings in the College Center. Di 
some meetings, workshops were also held, 
cussing various cultures which were represe 
by group members. 


(Pictures Midpage) Students take part in the annual Culture 
in Effect Lip Sync. 

Christian Fellowship is an active club on and around the Framingham State College 
campus and the surrounding communities. The purpose of this interdenominational 
organization is to learn more about the Bible and Christianity through discussion, 
studies, guest speakers, and fellowship events. These fellowship events include re- 
treats, concerts, and socials. 

Along with weekly Bible studies and prayer meetings, various activities with Christian organ- 
izations and other local colleges and community outreach programs are held through the year. 

High Adventure Club consists of members willing to enjoy and participate in numerous 
recreational activities such as hiking, backpacking, canoeing, camping, and more — 
anything in the name of adventure. 
These thrill-seekers travel all over New England for their activities and are consid- 
ered to be FSC's out-of-doors club-ready to embrace the outdoors and to wrestle with such fun 
activities as white water rafting as well. 

The High Adventure Club encourages anyone interested in adventuring the mountains, rivers, 
and beaches of New England to join their club. 

Social Outreach Club on the Framingham State College campus was founded recently in 
1 990. This group offers interested students an opportunity to provide volunteer services 
to needy individuals and social service organizations in the Metro West area. 
Members of the Social Outreach Club serve meals at a kitchen for needy persons, 
organize food drives and clothing drives for a food pantry in Natick, and have helped to raise 
monetary funds for charities in the area. 

Member meet weekly to assess current needs and to organize volunteers. 

Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Alliance, otherwise known as GLBA, is a group formed to 
educate the Framingham State College community regarding gays, lesbians, and 
related issues and to provide political involvement and social opportunities for the 
FSC community. The group also offers its members a forum for peer support. 
This year, the group helped sponsor a booth at the Sandbox Streetfair which was targeted at 
stopping the spread of prejudice against social groups of all types on campus. These groups 
included women and different ethnic cultures, as well as people of different sexual orientation. 




The Education Situation . . . 

The Kappa Chi chapter of Kappa Delta Pi is 
the honor society for Education at Framingham 
State. You must be a Junior with a 3.25 grade 
point average to join, or a graduate student with 
a 3.6 grade point average. 

When the Kappa Delta Pi society meets, the 
chapter presents speakers who deal with current 
topics in Education in a modern-day American 

The Student National Education Association 
(SNEA) is the student branch of the National Ed- 
ucation Association (NEA). 

As a professional organization, SNEA is de- 
signed to influence teacher education, to pro- 
mote students' rights, and to help prepare Ele- 
mentary and Early Childhood Education Majors 
and those with a minor in Secondary Education 
for success in the classroom. 

The organization sponsors many activities 
throughout the year, including lectures, hands- 
on workshops, field trips, and discussions with 
school superintendents. 

Making a Difference 

The Framingham State College Nurses' Or- 
ganization is open to all undergraduate FSC stu- 
dents. The club's purposes are to promote high 
quality health care in the community, to promote 
professional education process. 

Meetings are held periodically to keep stu- 
dents abreast of community and departmental 
issues. Guest speakers are scheduled each se- 

The International Awareness Club was acti- 
vated in the Spring semester of 1 989 at FWSC. 
Its purpose is to bring together students who 
wish to share and to broaden their knowledge of 
different cultural backgrounds and experiences. 
The club also aims to increase the level of aware- 
ness of international affairs. 

Membership is open to all students who wish 
to actively participate in the club's affairs. The 
club is looking for people who have ideas for 
activities and who are willing to work to produce 
these ideas. 

The club, in the past, has sponsored speaker 
Frank Reed, former hostage from Lebanon, and 
former DEA Michael Levine on the Drug War 
Fraud for National Drug Awareness Week. 

Where it All Started 

| Yep, we're the ones responsible ... for this 
nr's Dial Yearbook, that is. What we lacked 
number, we put back into the book with 
r hard work. With our dedicated staff of 
;ht, we captured major college events and 
?rall activities through pictorial media to 
•ve as a memory to the graduates and aids 
campus history. 

In addition to our 224 pages here, we also 
sponsored the Dart Game during the Street- 
fair, sold Candygrams at the Holiday Bazaar, 
and made delicious ice cream sandwiches dur- 
ing Sandbox. 

This year's theme of the Dial was "The 
Gold Standard." With the help of Natalie 
Knight and the Art Department, we were able 

to successfully transcribe FSC's pursuit of 
knowledge to the cover, endpages, and divid- 
er pages of our book. 

The 1993 dial staff included: Natalie 
Knight, Jonathan Miot, Tina Wong, Amy 
McGrail, Linda Edwards, Nancy Killeoea 
(Sports Editor), Cathy Socha (Managing Edi- 
tor), and Roberts Edwards (Editor-in-Chief).

Residence Hall Association 

Residency and Representation Form This Association 

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) on the 
Framingham State College campus is a vital part 
of every resident student's time at FSC for pro- 
viding social activities and communication be- 
tween the different halls. 

For those who are not quite sure how the RHA 
works, it goes as follows: Each residence hall on 
the Framingham State College campus has a Hall 
Government chapter within their own hall. This 

chapter is composed of elected officers and floor 
representatives. Out of these separate chapters 
are sent two representatives to the college's Res- 
idence Hall Association. 

Each year, hall cards are sold to minimize pro- 
gram costs. The funds which are raised are then 
used for a variety of different things, such as for 
buying cookware or exercise machinery for the

Geographical Association is a club designed to further the study of global understand- 
ing through discussion and interest in Geography and its related fields. 
Membership is open to all Geography majors and other students who are interested 
in geography and who are willing to actively participate in the activities of the club.

past, the Geographical Association has sponsored a Middle-East debate and National Geography 
Awareness week. The club meets in the seminar room of Hemenway Annex. 


Spanish Club at Framingham State College, otherwise known as "La Tertulia," is open 
to all students interested in the culture and the language of Spain and Latin America. 
The club this year was once again very active as it sponsored trips to Spanish restau- 
rants and to see Spanish films. The club also held "Taco Day" for its members, as well 
as Spanish dances and other cultural activities. 

The Spanish club has also brought to campus Spanish and Latin American folk groups, dance 
companies, guitar recitals, and speakers — thus also bringing a taste of the Spanish and Latin 
American cultures to the campus. 

Life Science Club's main purpose is to foster the students' interest in and to provide a 
supplement to the formal program of instruction in all the Biological and Medical sci-

ers, and the general encouragement of scholarship in the life sciences. 

In addition to their academic program, the club also sponsors social activities so that the 
students become well-rounded members of the collegiate community. 


Rugby-Survivial of the Fittes 

The F.S.C. Rugby Football 
Club was founded in 1983. It has 
grown to be one of the biggest 
clubs on campus. Since Rugby 
is not considered a varsity 
sport the members have the 
say in all aspects of the club. 
This means that the work 
doesn't just end after the 
cleats come off. The '92 fund 
raising campaign featured 
events such as the Rugby 
Dance, and the annual Rent-A-

FSC's Forward's battle to win the Scrum 

• • 

• • • 



A few women at FSC decided 
that the men shouldn't be the 
only ones to have all the fun. 
So they formed FSC's first 
Women's Rugby Club. They 
practiced hard for their games 
and played just as hard as the 
mens team. We wish them the 
best of luck for the future. 

The team warms up before the game. 




These women prove they can play just 
as hard as the boys. 




esidence life at FSC is 
far from definable. Larned 
and Towers are the most 
populated halls on campus. 
Foster has apartment-style 
living. There's also Horace 
Mann, Peirce, and O'Connor, 
the all-women's residences. 
Finally, off-campus Linsley 
Hall became the newly 
deemed over-21 residences. 

The Residence Halls have been a part 
of most students life for at least part of 
their college career. Each hall has a Hall 
government that build spirit in the hall 
and a Residence life staff to keep life run- 
ning smoothly. The following pages are a 
tribute to those people.

Linsley Hall made History this year when it 
became the over 2 I only hall. For the first time 
since FSC became a dry campus alcohol was al- 
lowed in a residence hall. The residents of Lin-

were still as close as ever. The Hall Government 
sponsered many events, such as a cook out as 
well as participating in activities like the annual

Foster Hall 

Foster Hall is the smallest residence hall on 
campus housing I 8 students and the RA. Foster 
is also the campus' substance free wellness hall. 
The student's in Foster learned about everything 
from sign language to communicating, during 
their many floor programs. Being so small the 
residents of Foster grow to be very close, and 
often refer to themselves as the Foster Family.

After practicing in the gym for a month, 
waiting for the snow to melt, the Fra- 
mingham State College Softball team fi- 
nally played its first game against 
Worcester State on April 4th. Thanks to 
the weather, the supposedly "home" 
games were played in Barnstable MA. 
Ending the season with 18 wins and nine 
losses, Framingham led by senior co-cap- 
tains Michelle Gilmore and Karen Pailler, 
had its best year in history. Framingham, 
One of the two teams in the MASCAC not 
to go to Florida this year, played impres- 
sively against second ranked, Bridgewa- 
ter State, in which they were defeated by 
only one run in each of the two games 
played on April 24th. In the second game 
against Bridgewater, FSC with their never 
give up attitude, came from behind to go 
into the 7th inning tied 5-5. Bridgewater 
gained the one needed to win with a sac- 
rifice fly (bad call). 

The success of any team, Framingham 
not excluded, depends on the strength of 
its pitching staff. Framingham's pitchers 
sophomore Karen Cole (MASCAC Player 
of the Week and Framingham's MVP) and 
Freshman Tera Reynolds are two of the 
best pitchers in FSC history.

hey're our graduating 
seniors — the latest batch of 
what Framingham State Col- 
lege has to offer. They will 
leave this campus with a 
new direction — a new en- 
deavor which will scatter 
some of them to the farth- 
est corners of the world. 
They are the Framingham 
State alumnae of 1993.

As part of Homecoming celebrations, 
the Senior Class marked the beginning of 
the end of their college careers with the 
traditional Investiture ceremony. The tra- 
dition started in the 12th century in Eng- 
land. It marks the first time that the grad- 
uating class is publicly presented wearing 
their graduation gowns. The Keynote 
speaker for the occasion was Senator Ed- 
ward Markey.

The Cafe is a com-

commuter students as

students. It's a great 
place to grab that

morning or some tasty 
fast food any time of

either eat inside on

outside on the picnic

93 Days Left 

A snowy night in February turned into 
one of the hottest nights of the year 
thanks to Senior Countdown. The Class of 
1993, with the help of FSC favorites, "The 
Cape Cod Travelling All-Stars," partied the 
night away at this annual event, which 

marked the start of the 93-day cour 
down 'til graduation. Seniors got a chan 
to stump the band and sing along to th 
favorite songs. It was a night that no o 
will forget.

Think back for a moment, way back, four maybe five years (maybe more). Remember freshman 

year or even your first day at FSC? Do you remember how you felt? Maybe your were scared or 

perhaps a little anxious. Remember wondering if you would make it to graduation? By 

sophomore year you had overcome those feelings and by junior year you were an "old pro" at 

college life ( sneaking a sandwich past Frieda in the cafe or finding a parking space when you 

were late for your 8:30 or even making it to your 8:30). We all suffered through the stressful 

times: term papers, finding four classes, late night cram sessions and even Thursday nights. No 

matter what happened, didn't it seem to be a relatively carefree time? Maybe because then May 

1993 seemed to be an eternity away. Now, it has come and gone and you are probably wondering 

where it all went. Perhaps even those same feelings that you experienced as a freshman have come 

back, only now for different reasons. No longer are you afraid of making friends or fitting in. 

You're not anxious about passing an exam or taking the right classes. Now you may be anxious 

about finding a job or graduate school. Maybe you're anxious about stepping outside the safe 

environment of a college campus and stepping into the "real world." During the four years spent at 

FSC I have experienced many good times as well as bad times. I have struggled through what 

may have seemed like some of the most difficult moments in my life. I faced many challenges. I 

accepted those challenges and made it through. I know that this is only the beginning and that 

there are many more challenges down the road but this time it is different. Now, I am no longer 

scared. Now that I look back at the time I have spent at Framingham State College I know that I 

couldn't be better prepared for what lies ahead. I feel confident and ready to take that first step into 

the "real world" and meet those challenges head on. I am also confident that you too can take that 

step. The only way to succeed is to believe in yourself. The following is a poem by Susan 

Mitchell that I believe says it all. 

Believe that you are far finer 

than you ever dare to imagine; 

Believe that you can be 

more than you have ever dreamed; 

Believe that you have more courage 

than you can see; 

Believe that you are far stronger 

than your fears have allowed you to know; 

Believe that you can survive more 

than you think anyone can; 

Believe that you can love more fully 

than you ever thought your heart would allow; 

Believe that you are truly more unique and special 

than you have allowed yourself to acknowledge; 

Believe that you can live this life more nobly 

and fully and joyfully than you have ever dared to reach for. 

Good luck in all that you do and always believe that anything is possible.

Senior Week 

It's Almost the End of The Road 

After taking their last fi- 
nal, the seniors celebratd 
during the Senior Week 
events. The week started 
off with an overnight trip to 
Pufferbellies where stu- 
dents played volleyball 
games or just hung out. Next 
was a party at Maximus 
where the seniors danced 
the night away. Thursday 
brought graduation re- 
hearsal and a Pub night 
where everyone watched 
the final episode of Cheers. 
The week was capped off 
with a trip to Boston to 
watch the Red Sox beat the 
Yankees. A good time was 
had by all, for this was their 

SGA VP Shawn Brown dances the 
night away at Pufferbellies.

Before the grand ceremony 
of graduation there is a small- 
er gathering called Baccalau- 
reate. Here the graduates 
come together for one final 
goodbye with those loved ones 
who have meant the most to 
them during their years at Fra- 
mingham State. Parents, rela- 
tives, and friends watched the 
graduates file into Dwight Au- 
dioturium during the Cande- 
light Procession. Everyone was 
welcomed by Vice President 
Marianne D'Amico. After this 
there were readings and songs 
by class members and other 
FSC students. The ceremony 
ended with the exchanging of 
flowers by class members as a 
token of thanks to those who 
helped them along the way. 
Many tears were shed but they 
were tears of joy and excite- 
ment for what lied ahead.

Valedictorian Jody Overland speaks to the Claj / 

Four, plus, years of work all came down 
to one moment, Graduation. In the begin- 
ning it seemed so far away, but the closer 
it came the more exciting it was. The cer- 
emony took place on May 23, 1993, on the 
Village Green. Family and friends gath- 
ered together to join the students in this 
happy moment. Commencement speaker 
was Patricia McGovern, who spoke about 

the importance of public higher educa- 
tion. Honorary degrees were conferred 
on Former Biology Professor Dr. Dana Jost, 
who received a standing ovation from the 
students in that department, and FSC 
Alumni Jeffery Stetson, who wrote the 
play "The Meeting." It was a moment few 
of the class will ever forget.

the product of well-meant 
wishes for success. The 
1993 Dial Yearbook staff 
wishes to thank the follow- 
ing individuals for their 
generous support of

Letter From the Editor 

August 30, 1993 1:26am 

Yes, the date is correct. I have just com- 
pleted the 1993 Edition of the Dial. It was a 
long put off project but it is finally done. I 
apologize for the delay of the book. But, like 
most recent graduates, I had started a new 
job and was putting all my energy into that. 
So once again I am sorry. 

The Dial ran into some problems along the 
way. First was a shipment of film getting 
lost in the mail. This is the reason that there 
is no Homecoming section, which were the 
pictures that were lost. Although the staff 
was small they were hard working and loyal. 
Thank you to Tina, Amy, Jon, Linda, Nancy 
and Natilie. You guys are the best. You did 
a great job. 

Thank you to Managing Editor, Cathy 

Socha, you kept me going and kept me in 
line, especially in the last few weeks. You 
will do a great job as Editor-in-Chief next 

Thank You to Dick Swiech from Herff 
Jones. You have the patience of a Saint. 
Thanks to The Great' Norm Benrimo and 
Steve Williams, from Yearbook Associates, 
for all the film and pictures you guys took. 
You are the best. 

Thank you to Advisors Elinor Goodwin 
and Deb Bochynski, for never giving up. 

Last but not least thank you to the Class 
of 1993, without you there would be no book. 

I hope you enjoyed it. 

Roberta Edwards
